As a Senior Caseworker, I support young people through the asylum process and advocate on their behalf to enable them to access their full statutory rights and entitlements to education, social services support, health care, housing and legal advice.

Prior to working at Young Roots, I provided support to homeless individuals with complex immigration status, with the aim of resolving their immigration status and facilitating their connection into housing. I have also coordinated a government funded project within the area of diversity and inclusion for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students in UK Universities, focusing on attainment disparities.
